Donald Trump has dramatically escalated the trade dispute with China by slapping 10% tariffs on US$200bn of Chinese imports from September 24, marking the largest round of US tariffs so far.

Chinese stocks listed in Hong dropped by a third of one percent by mid-morning on Tuesday. Offshore yuan fell below 6.89 before recovering as the trading session wore on.

On Wednesday's Backchat, plastic waste and marine pollution. Huge amounts of plastic litter and polystyrene foam washed up on our shores in the aftermath of Typhoon Manghkut, and volunteers and green groups have started many clean-up operations. Where did it come from, and why is there so much? How much will now go back to our seas and what should we be doing to reduce the amount generally in Hong Kong? Call us with your thoughts on 23388266 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. After 9.20, how safe are the trees after typhoon, and should we replant, or skip trees in a densely populated typhoon-prone city?
